Haul Post!

It's that time again. Time for another haul post! Although my book haul posts might be coming to an end for a few months, at least, my haul posts won't be going anywhere. I mean, I do want to curb my spending. But one thing at a time, right? Let's kick the book buying habit first. Then I'll work on the rest of my problems! So here's a little look at what I've been buying lately.

Book Review: Zodiac by Sam Wilson

In a corrupt and volatile society where people are divided and defined by zodiac signs, status is cast at birth and binding forever. The line between a life of luxury and an existence of poverty can be determined by the stroke of midnight.

When a series of uniquely brutal murders targets victims of totally different signs, is it a misguided revolution or the work of a serial killer?

All eyes are on Detective Jerome Burton and Profiler Lindi Childs. They may disagree over whether the answers are written in the stars, but they are united by their belief that a grand plan is being executed...

Poetry Isn't Dead!

Although I reviewed each of Rupi Kaur's poetry collections on the blog a few months ago, I wanted to share a few of my favourite poems from this wonderful poetress with you. I hope you enjoy the poems I've included in my faves, and I'd love you to share your own favourites with me in the comments!

November-December Book Haul!

I hate to alarm anyone, but this may be the last book haul post you see from me for a couple of months! I've put myself on a book buying ban that I hope to span 4 months - November, December, January and February. And come February, I plan to buy a lot less books than I'm reading every month. So although these posts will likely come back in the new year, they may be more infrequent than they have been lately! So sit back and enjoy my last book haul post for a while. Also featuring a few photos including my cat, who is forever judging me for buying more books!

A Day Out At The National Sealife Centre, Birmingham

Earlier this year, hubby and I took a week off together and went on a few day trips. One of these was to The National Sealife Centre, in Birmingham. And I took so many photos and videos, I just had to share some with you! So enjoy this photo/video heavy post.

Book Review: Mindhunter by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker

FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science, John Douglas, is a man who has looked evil in the eye and made a vocation of understanding it. Now retired, Douglas can let us inside the FBI elite serial crime unit and into the disturbed minds of some of the most savage serial killers in the world.

The man who was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and who lent the film's makers his expertise explains how he invented and established the practice of criminal profiling; what it was like to submerge himself mentally in the world of serial killers to the point of 'becoming' both perpetrator and victim; and individual case histories including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders.

With the fierce page-turning power of a bestselling novel, yet terrifyingly true, Mindhunter is a true crime classic.
